About the book
Sold toDenmark: Storytel
Having avoided writing anything of significance in her diary over the past year, Annika has now decided to actually keep a journal and to tell the truth about her life as a middle-aged woman. The humour and compassion that pervaded Devert’s first novel are just as present here.
Annika’s life consists of her demanding yet rewarding job as a chief physician, as well as family life and friends. She also sings in a choir and has found a new hobby in watercolour painting. The hot flushes are still there, and so are the mixed feelings about being a grandmother; she loves her grandson but is she really old enough for this new role? The attraction to her fiancé and husband-to-be is still strong, but she feels confused about his gorgeous and much younger colleague; is she a threat to their upcoming wedding? And what about her own flirting with the handsome medical intern Hampus. In addition, there are worries for her mother’s health as well as ongoing issues with her sister. And not least: should one succumb to the seductive powers of the beauty industry?
